    I will be getting the iPhone 7 Plus, so yea I'm waiting for it. I'm hoping it has the rumoured dual camera, I'm not to bothered about a redesign (I like the current one).

    picked up an iPhone SE. Best iPhone design EVER! (imo)

    If we have to believe the rumours, the iPhone 7 will look almost the same as the 6-series, which I find one of the ugliest designed iPhone's ever.

    I don't agree! With you the iPhone se has the design which we have been seeing from years. Completely outdated I don't like the antenna bands and protruding camera of iPhone 6 otherwise nothing bad about design.

    Same here, I'm so happy with my SE, its everything I wanted. It was an easy decision given the rumors of the 7. I'm not interested in an even thinner phone, which is one rumor, or the loss of the audio jack. I'm sure I'll have to bite the bullet at some point, but right now my SE is everything I wanted and hoped for, conversely, everything I've heard about the 7 is was something I didn't want (other then the dual camera).

    I would have definitely gone for the iPhone se if it would have come with an all new design or even in iPhone 6 shrinkin body but that old iPhone 5 design it completely looks outdated.without that fancy color nobody can judge that's it's iPhone 5s or se. Just some updated stuffs.feels stupid better pay some more buck and get iPhone 6s a lot more features than stupid edition

    I love the design, its classic and I think its so much better then the iPhone 6 design - to each his own, but I love the 5/5s/se design over the 6/6s

    i think the opposite, there have been a couple of leaks plus the analyst that nearly everyone believes Ming-Chichow has said that the iPhone 7 will have the dual camera system.

    Hopefully the ip7 will have the OIS from the 6s+.

    The SE appears to be a good successor to the 5s...long awaited.

    I'm very surprised how much I like the SE. I thought I would miss the 6S plus. Instead I've come to the conclusion that I couldn't go back to a larger phone
    The SE is everything I hope for in a phone that has the looks, power and fits my hand and pocket so well

    To some it may be outdated looks but to me it’s a classic

    Sometimes newer isn’t always better

    Yeah, I'm waiting for the 7. I'd have been waiting for it while using my old iPhone 5 though, entirely skipping the whole 6 series, if not for wanting to force a phone upgrade out of my carrier and then later porting out.

    That meant a 6+ this time last year and a 6s+ in late September 2015. I've dealt with the fugly bands and fugly protruding camera so hopefully the 7+ or 7 Pro or whatever Apple will call it will look better.

    In any case, the 7 is where our actual phone upgrades SHOULD have occured so we will be back on track for another two years once it comes.

    Oh. And I'm jailbroken, so waiting for the new 7 isn't bad at all when I can make my phone look/act the way I want it to.

    I'm not waiting for the 7, my next phone has already been introduced, the SE. I fully understand and am all for those that are anxiously waiting for the newest and most up to date model 7. I just think that Apple has really covered all the bases by recognizing and supporting those of us who love the smaller phone and the classic build of the SE, but will also satisfy others with the latest and greatest model 7. Way to go Apple!!!!

    I just wish we knew whether the rumors are right that the 7 is a minimal update, with a major 8 just a year later. If so, I may just buy the 6s or 6s+ now, then wait until 2017. Do an 18 month cycle instead.

    Someone needs my existing 6 (still using a 4).

    To this moment, I have gotten every new iPhone on launch day just because I enjoy it and I can. And I am with ya in that I have grown bored of the 6 series. But based on all of the leaks to this point, many from analysts with solid track records, it looks like the 7 will not differentiate much from the 6 series leaving me for the first time ever contemplating skipping a generation. Sucks, because I love getting a new phone.

    New rumors suggest that iPhone 7 is coming with new touch sensitive button + waterproof and dust proof that means no more dust on top corners of the screen and camera lens

    I'm using the iPhone 6 Plus and skipped the iPhone 6s Plus.

    Now awaiting on the new iPhone launch later this year.

    If it does not tick my wants and needs boxes in regards to what's under its hood then I'll choose to stay with what I have and see what iOS 10 brings.

    or maybe have some time with a Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge, and then look to see what happens a further year along with the iPhone 8 or whatever it's badged as.

    That is so true. Though, I hope the 2017 "Mega Update" rumours are meant for the 2018 version. It'd suck to see a drastic update within one year of buying the 7.

    2017 would be an S year going by the current established pattern.

    the iPhone 7 will be a 6 with minor casing tweaks and the latest gimmicks that aren't good for anything aside from showing off the feature. I hate to say this because i am a fanboy but i think the success of the iphone has destroyed the iphone. Apple doesn't feel the need to innovate, they know each release will sell millions so why pour so much $ into R&D when we can reused the casing and just tweak the innards. Case in point, iPhone SE.

    Now what i do think is that the iPhone 7 will boost iPhone SE sales through the roof. Fast as hell in a compact design, something Apple has never done before. Usually the "mini" has less than stellar tech. Case in point, iPhone 5C or iPad Mini ( up until iPad Mini 4).

    iPhone 8 will be the next major design change and will be a full departure from current and past form factors.
